Reflections for Patrolman Gregory Dean Stewart

A fine American Hero who did his duty above and beyond the call, Rest now Officer Stewart.

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family and fellow officers of Patrolman Stewart.

While no one who wears a badge wants to be put into such a situation, you put yourself into the line of fire to protect those around you despite the danger. While I did not have the privilege to have known him personally, I am certain that he has found a place in heaven.

Rest in peace my friend; those of us who remain will cover your post on the thin blue line.

True courage was shown by Patrolman Stewart when he threw caution to the wind in order to protect his friend. To then be able to give an accurate description is just amazing. He truly is a hero and I salute you, Patrolman Stewart.

God, watch over his son and may he always feel Gregory's presence.

God Bless and and Rest in Peace, Brother.

Greg,

Take care of yourself up there and rest in peace. If you get bored up there try to make God laugh as hard as you use to make us laugh back in high school over in England. I am sure he will appreciate your sense of humor as much as we did back then. In the mean time, the rest of us down here will look after your family and make sure that things are looked after. I only hope that your son grows up to be as much like you as possible and that he will remember you as a hero. You will be missed by everyone and I will make sure that everyone in the old group knows about what happened. If your looking to get back to work those of us still down here patrolling the streets would appreciate it if you watch over our backs. Until we meet again Greg, Rest in Peace.

Your Friend

“REMEMBER ME”
Law enforcement officers are, indeed, a special breed of people. Ask anyone on the street and they will tell you that they would not have our jobs for anything in the world. It takes something special to do what we do and at the same time be able to even contemplate retirement. We try to be optimists. Unfortunately, there are a few of us who will never make that date with retirement. By the very nature of our job, we are at risk everyday of losing our lives, either at the hand of some deranged individual or in some other situation that we, by virtue of our occupation, may be unable to avoid. Some people have recognized the hazardous duties we involve ourselves in, the risks we take, and the pride we take in accomplishing that job. There is National Law Enforcement Week, dedicated to us who gladly accept the responsibility of protecting the citizens in our respective jurisdictions. National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Day is dedicated to those who gave their lives in the line of duty. These are but two examples of remembrances specifically for law enforcement personnel. Remembrances that come but once a year. We should remind fellow officers of another type of remembrance, one that will last a lifetime. Sooner or later, a doctor will pronounce us dead. It is inevitable. Regardless of whatever happens, death is the end we will all have to face.

Absolutely a Hero. Rest in peace in a much better place than this hell. God bless.

The policeman stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

"Step forward now, policeman.
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To my church have you been true?"

The policeman squared his shoulders and said,
"No lord, I guess I ain't,
Because those of us who carry a badge
can't always be a saint."

I've had to work most Sundays,
and at times my talk was rough,
and sometimes I've been violent,
Because the streets are awfully tough.

But I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,
Though at time I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fear.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod.
As the policeman waited quietly,
For the judgement of his god.

"Step forward now, policeman,
You've born your burdens well.
Come walk a beat on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in hell"
